Here's a situation :

Bandit archer turn
Her focus is the Brute, but the archer is stuck in a corner next to the said Brute and a trap, so she cannot move, she won't go through the trap because the Brute could eventually move away, so she attacks the Brute with disadvantage.

BUT, the archer could also shoot at the Spellweaver at range 2. Would she do that instead, or would she persist and attack the Brute because he is her focus, even if she has disadvantage?

Once focus is established it will not change. The brute is the closest valid target so he will be the focus, therefore the archer will attack him, even with disadvantage.

Monsters will always attack their focus, even if it's suboptimal. The archer is worried about her biggest threat, which is the Brute right there attacking her, not some other random mercenary.
